ABOUT Brazilian Jiu Jitsu For Kids

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Kids (ages 7 & up)

Get to know

Spartan Academy Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes offer kids a holistic approach, focusing on essential ground techniques, self-defense, physical fitness, and social skills in a dynamic and supportive atmosphere. Through engaging activities, we develop gross motor skills, cooperation, and fundamental defensive techniques. Our program places great emphasis on discipline, cooperation, self-confidence, and situational awareness.

During each 45-minute session, kids learn a variety of skills including takedowns, chokes, defense techniques, and submissions, both standing and on the ground. To apply what they’ve learned, students actively participate in supervised sparring sessions, providing an opportunity to practice and refine their techniques. Our classes maintain a high-energy, fun environment that fosters physical fitness and discipline.

While competition is encouraged, we understand that it is not mandatory. Spartan Academy value individual growth and cater to each student’s goals and aspirations.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu transforms young minds with its empowering force.
